The Empowered Woman of Gordon Parks's 'American Gothic'

Gordon Parks's photograph “American Gothic”

afforded rare attention to a black female subject

who was not a celebrity or entertainer,

but a mother and a worker.

photographer, filmmaker,

writer and composer

who used his prodigious,

largely self-taught talents

to chronicle

the African-American experience

and to retell

his own personal history

 

(...)

 

He developed

a large following

as a photographer for Life

for more than 20 years,

and by the time he was 50

he ranked among

the most influential

image makers

of the postwar years.

 

In the 1960's

he began to write

memoirs, novels,

poems and screenplays,

which led him to directing films.

 

In addition to

"The Learning Tree,"

he directed

the popular action films

"Shaft"

and "Shaft's Big Score!"

 

In 1970 he helped

found Essence magazine

and was its editorial director

from 1970 to 1973.

 

(...)

 

Mr. Parks's years

as a contributor to Life,

the largest-circulation

picture magazine of its day,

lasted from 1948 to 1972,

and it cemented his reputation

as a humanitarian photojournalist

and as an artist

with an eye for elegance.

 

He specialized in subjects

relating to racism,

poverty and black urban life,

but he also took exemplary pictures

of Paris fashions, celebrities

and politicians.
